Check out the latest poll on repealing President Barack Obama’s takeover of the health care system, According to Rasmussen Reports:
Some things never change, and voter opposition to the recently passed national health care law appears to be one of them.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 56% favor repeal of the law, while 39% are opposed. Support for repeal is unchanged from a week ago. That support is also proving to be just as consistent as opposition to the health care plan before it was passed into law.
In polls conducted every week since the law was passed in March, support for repeal has stayed in a very narrow range from a low of 54% to a high of 58%.
The current results include 45% who Strongly Favor repeals and 33% who are Strongly Opposed. Among senior citizens, the generation most likely to use the health care system, 63% favor repeal.
The health care bill produces an enormous perception gap between the Political Class and the rest of the country. While most voters nationwide favor repeal, the Political Class is opposed to repeal by an 88% to eight percent (8%) margin.
Overall, 39% of voters believe the law will be good for the country, and 50% say it will be bad. Among the Political Class, 97% see the law as good, while 64% of Mainstream voters say it will be bad.
It clearly appears that a majority of Americans do not trust the Federal government to administer their health care, and given the Feds track record (Iraq, Katrina, the bailouts, unemployment and insuring sound money immediately come to mind), I can’t blame them.
Nowhere in the Constitution does it give the Federal government this sort of power, and it underlines the huge disconnect between politicians and the people they supposedly represent.
Come November, I expect a great many of the political class to be wearing shocked looks on their faces as they cash their unemployment checks.
